# Answers to the LA Math Test

City of Los Angeles High School Math Proficiency Exam

Gang:___ PhD_____

1. Duane has an AK47 with a 30 round clip. If he misses 6 out of 10 shots and shoots 13 times at each drive by shooting, how many drive by shootings can he attempt before he has to reload?

30/13 = 2.3 so he has some rounds left.

Int(2.3) + 1 = 3.

The street cameras do not help as many are just fakes to deter shootings and crime, like on the BART subway cars.

2. If Jose has two ounces of cocaine and he sells an 8 ball to Jackson for $320 and 2 grams to Billy for $85 per gram, what is the street value of the balance of the cocaine if he doesn't cut it?

2 oz * 28.34 gm/oz = 56.68 gm to start.

8 ball = 3.5 gm.

Street value of 8 ball = 320/3.5 = $91.42/gm

Street value of 2 gm = 85/2 = $44.40/ gm

Gms left = 56.68-3.5-2 = 51.18 gm

Value left uncut is based on the higher price, as Jackson was obviously a gang related friend = 51.18*91.42 = $4,679.00.

3. Rufus is pimping for three girls. If the price is $65 for each trick, how many tricks will each girl have to turn so Rufus can pay for his $800 per day crack habit?

(800/65)/3 = 4.1

Int(4.1) + 1 = 5, assuming no arrests…

4. Jarome wants to cut his 1/2 pound of Heroin to make 20% more profit. How many ounces of cut will he need?

0.5 lb *oz/lb = 8 oz.

8*.2 = 1.6 oz of filler of the same density.

5. Willie gets $200 for stealing a BMW, $50 for a Chevy and $100 for a 4x4. If he has stolen 2 BMW's and 3 4x4's, how many Chevy's will he have to steal to make $800?

2*200+3*100+50*x = 800

x=2 Chevys

6. Raoul is in prison for 6 years for murder. He got $10,000 for the hit. If his common law wife is spending $100 per month, how much money will he have left when he gets out of prison and how many years will he get for killing her since she spent his money?

First of all, 6 months for “murder” is probably Second Degree Murder in AK (see the charts at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_punishments_for_murder_in_the_United_States)

Money left = 10,000 – 100*12*6 = $2,800.00 minus loans made in prison to avoid getting gang raped.

Killing her in AK is a second offense, due to her spending the money, so he’s angry, and it’s First Degree Murder = 0–50 years or Life without parole (or Capital Murder=Death or Life without parole) -

Unless he gets off via the Clinton machine.

7. If the average spray paint can covers 22 square feet and the average letter is 3 square feet, how many letters can a tagger spray with 3 cans of paint?

3*22/3 = 22.

Except for these expanded ego gang members, they would make more elaborate letters by 50%, so maybe they’d get 12 done, before getting shot by pellet guns via concerned citizens.

8. Hector knocked up six girls in his gang. There are 27 girls in the gang. What percentage of the girls in the gang has Hector knocked up?

(6/27)*100 = 22.22%, except that the leader unjustly fingered him for 2 or 3…

9. Thelma can cook dinner for her 16 children for $7.50 per night. She gets $234 a month welfare for each child. If her $325 per month rent goes up 15%, how many more children should she have to keep up with her expenses?

Income per child = 234-7.50*30 = 9

More Kids Needed = 325*0.15/9 = 5.4 = Int(5.4) + 1 = 6.

Easy to do by forging the existing records…

10. Salvador was arrested for dealing crack and his bail was set at $25,000. If he pays a bail bondsman 12% and returns to Mexico, how much money will he lose by jumping bail?

None, as he will be reimbursed by the Mexican Cartel that he works for.

The bail bondsman keeps the 25K*0.12 = $3,000, and returns some in hope of more future business.

11.Bernie is a lookout for the gang. Bernie has a Boa Constrictor that eats 3 small rats per week at a cost of $5 per rat. If Bernie makes $700 a week as a lookout, how many weeks can he feed the Boa on one week's income?

You would think 700/(3*5) = 46.6 = 46 weeks.

But, Bernie has other expenses as well…

So we figure that - based on similar presented data, he needs 7.50 for food and 325/30 for rent per day

Then he could feed the boa rats per week as (700 - 7.50*7 –(325/30)*7)/15 = 38.1 = 38 weeks.

That’s a lot of boa poop.

12. Billy steals Joe's skateboard. As Billy skates away at 35 mph, Joe loads his .357 Magnum. If it takes Joe 20 seconds to load his magnum, how far away will Billy be when he gets whacked?

He won’t get whacked.

(35 m/hr) * (88 ft/sec) / (60 m/hr) = 51.33 ft/sec

51.33 ft/sec*20 sec = 1026 ft = 342 yds = 0.19 miles.

“My personal max range would probably be about 40 yards with a iron sighted revolver.” Ref: https://www.shootersforum.com/handguns/24148-range-357-magnum.html

Joe is wasting his ammo and probably kills an innocent walker, whose companions promptly find and kill Joe.

Billy sells the skateboard and gets the 8 ball above.
